Jaren Sina commits to Seton Hall
By Kieran Darcy
Point guard Jaren Sina committed to Seton Hall on Wednesday, over Indiana and Northwestern.
The New Jersey native had previously committed to Northwestern, but reopened his recruitment after coach Bill Carmody was fired last month.
Fred Hill, who was an assistant under Carmody at Northwestern, was officially hired by Seton Hall as an assistant on Wednesday as well.
Sina, 6-foot-2 and 175 pounds, is from Lake Hopatcong, N.J., played at Gill St. Bernard's School, and was rated the fifth-best senior in the state by ESPN. "Sina is a super skilled guard with a lethal jump shot," according to his ESPN Recruiting scouting report. "He's as skilled and smart as they get but his intangibles are what separate him. He plays with unwavering confidence and just enough cockiness to maximize his talents."
It's a big addition for Seton Hall coach Kevin Willard. The Pirates are coming off a 15-18 season, 3-15 in the Big East, and were in desperate need of backcourt help following the transfer of second-leading scorer Aaron Cosby.
